Based on technology, the market is segmented into conjugate vaccines, inactivated and subunit vaccines, live attenuated vaccines, recombinant vaccines, and toxoid vaccines. The conjugate vaccines segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth is attributed to the rising prevalence of infectious diseases and the increasing government investments for development of conjugate vaccines.

Based on type, the vaccine market is segmented into monovalent vaccines and multivalent vaccines. The monovalent vaccines segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing investment by companies to develop new monovalent vaccines is the key factor driving the growth of this segment.
